Didn't claim anything of the sort. All I'm saying is from my experience that is a painful break, and incase it's news to people, BROKEN BONES TEND TO HURT. Fighting on with a broken arm and getting a KO, pain or no pain, is fucking incredible. WAR FRANKLIN!!

Mir snapped Sylvia's arm in half (I believe three breaks?) and Tim obviously didn't feel it. Showed no signs of pain whatsoever even after the fight was stopped.I agree with the other guy. Not every injury, even of the same type, feels the same. It's retarded to claim otherwise.

I know, just worded it badly. I meant imagine fighting on with that injury, and getting that KO.Spectacular display of toughness and heart from Rich. Awesome

When people ask me to name my favorite fighters in all MMA / all organizations, my list hasn't changed in years.... Couture, Franklin, Wanderlei.... are there others i like?...yes. Are there any i like more than those 3??...nope... If i was told i could be given the chance to train with ANYONE in the world i wanted, i'd choose amongst those 3...

That's one muscled Americana if it broke your forearm.

LOL@the tough guy trying to walk back his previous blustering about being such a hardass who doesnt feel pain. Too funny
